And now … a message from Legless Santa

Well, here at it feels like about a year since last Christmas. When we looked just now there was a tree in the corner festooned with flashing coloured lights, so we reckon it must be Christmas again. It’s kind of hard to tell for us. This year we’ve been flat out like a bunch of thirsty lizards, what with babies arriving, careers changing, going away on trips, meeting people, doing stuff, saying goodbye to people, coming home from trips, making deadlines, moving house, running businesses, staying put and generally juggling work, family, surf and the gloriously pointless self-indulgence that is What we REALLY want to say to you, our loyal following of lunatic-fringe-dwelling oddball friends, is this. Thanks for hanging on with us through the last year. We really appreciate the feedback that trickles in from you all out there in the sandy corner of cyberspace we inhabit. Chayne found this picture of Legless Santa, and we saw it as a neat metaphor for where we’re all at, or where we’d like to be. We may be killing it, we may be going over the falls, but either way we’re gonna do it in the style of our choice and enjoy every single second.

Merry Christmas, one and all. May the fat feller fill your stockings with comfort and joy, and may Hui bring you a few festive waves as well. See yez in 2015!
